TGO Challenge walk - slide show

Andy Howell is giving a talk about his TGO Challenge walks to Stockport Walking and Outdoor Group.

Little Blurb about the talk
The Rab TGO Challenge is often refered to as the World's premier,
backpacking, event. Each May three hundred people gather on the West
Coast of Scotland to spend two weeks walking across the Highlands to
reach the East Coast. The Challenge is not a race. 'Challengers'
choose their own routes - and pace - and walk independently of each
other. It is certainly a personal challenge, but there is also a very
special social side to the event which culminates in a grand
gathering of Challengers at the Park Hotel in Montrose.

Andy Howell has walked extensively in mountain regions throughout
Europe but hadn't spent as much time walking in Scotland. He has now
completed two 'Challenges' and - having now got the hang of it - is
planning his third. But he can still remember the senses of exitment,
foreboding and terror that he experienced when he realised that he'd
been accepted onto the Challenge for the first time!

In this session Andy will talk about planning for the Challenge and
talk through his two routes. He will also discuss the kit and
equipment that he has used, as he aimed to carry a load that is
light, safe and reliable to use.

Small 1 fee will be charge.
